Firestorm finally has an alpha version of their Bento viewer available for download, however, you must join their group to get access to it. Right now they are in the testing phase and, according to their plurk, they are requesting people join their Phoenix-Firestorm Preview Group inworld and once you do, check the notices for a notecard that will have the download link in it. They are asking people not to share this link and to stay in the group and provide feedback. They want to sort out all of the bugs in the viewer before they go public with it so this is a great opportunity for all of us to download it, test it out and get it to perfection before it goes official. I have already joined and downloaded this version and have been testing it out since yesterday, so far I haven’t noticed anything too buggy but I will be making a list to help them out, hope you guys do the same!
I finally got a chance to update my shape for the Akeruka Elen Mesh head which was updated to a Bento version a couple of weeks ago. I have made a little video showing all of the options to this head and also showed myself playing with the sliders. Elen was a previously released head which was updated to Bento so if you had purchased it earlier, head down to the Akeruka mainstore and hit the redelivery. In the video I also showed the new Bento face animations that will be coming from Akeruka once Bento goes official.

I’m sure you all know how much of a social media addict enthusiast I am. I decided to check out another social network recently. I actually joined it a while back, some time last year, but didn’t really start using it more often until recently. Avatar Social Network is like a facebook but for Second […] Continue reading →
(click here for raw shot) Today I ate copious amounts of delicious food and then fell in a food-induced coma. Needless to say, it was a great Thanksgiving.

Before I start today’s post, I wanted to quickly say thank you to some people who sent me gifts using my Second Life wishlist. Almost two weeks ago I blogged: Second Life Wish Lists by E2 Designs.

Recently I’ve been going through a lot in my personal life and whenever I do I always turn to old favorite books to read for distraction, usually by Jane Austen or Shel Silverstein. This morning I was reading “The Giving Tree” and aside from all the controversy that surrounds that poem, it is still one […] Continue reading →

After skimming through my out-of-control inventory earlier this morning, I realized that this is the first League skin I have ever owned. I am totally shocked about that myself.
